Podcasts are fascinating. Back when we started, all this was fields, the whole area was a sort of Wild West of broadcasting; entirely unregulated and with plenty of deadwood. Now people have noticed that there’s gold in them there hills. From Serial to Stuff You Should Know, podcasts are bigger than ever and their growth shows no signs of slowing. If video didn’t kill the radio star then podcasts are certainly sneaking up behind it with a length of lead piping.
Titans coach Mark Boucher is hoping his side can secure the win he feels they deserve in the remaining two rounds of the Sunfoil Series before the four-day season breaks in the coming weeks. The log leaders travel to the Dolphins over the weekend ahead of their round four encounter starting at the City Oval in Pietermaritzburg on Monday.
Highveld Lions coach Geoffrey Toyana has predicted a tough round four Sunfoil Series encounter for his side when they lock horns with the reigning champions Knights at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom from Monday. Both teams, like every other one in the competition, are yet to taste victory this season, meaning the top of the table is a log-jam heading into what is the penultimate match before the halfway stage – and a break in the four-day season.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
